For you Valentine

I love Valentines Day.

A full  day smothered in Pink and Red . And better yet, it’s a day to let your family and friends know how much you love them.

A few weeks ago while I was at the thrift store I came across a vintage egg basket and immediately thought of a friend. I added it to my cart and brought it home with me.  The basket has been sitting in my grage just waiting to get packaged up .



Round item’s can be tricky to wrap, so I decided not to wrap the whole basket.  Using a strip of crepe paper I used my sewing machine and ruffled it together. Once I had it wrapped  around the basket I glued the two crepe paper ends together and then tied a piece of lace and gold sequins to the top.

I then began layering and adding a variety of textures to the top.

  1. Vintage flash card ( 2+3 = 5 is the number of people in the recipients family - 2 adults / 3 kids )
  2. Vintage Valentine
  3. hot pink ribbon tied onto a gold paper clip
  4. cloths pin with glittered top
  5. pink tickets
  6. Maggie Holmes SHINE collection “LOVE YOU” paper
  7. White shipping tag typed with a message and added accessories from Maggie Holmes BLOOM collection


To start I first placed the vintage flash card on top of the ruffled crepe paper and under the lace.  The tickets then went on top of the flash card. .


This vintage valentine goes perfect with the chicken wire basket gift. I have been saving it for the perfect gift and am so excited to finally share it.


On top of the tickets I added the vintage Valentine card and used my bow paper clip to hold everything together.


Lastly, I tucked in my typed note and added the ” LOVE YOU” card to the top.

Don’t be afraid to layer and use a variety of textures.


Valentines Day is all about letting those close to you know who much they are loved. I’m hoping this little package will put a smile on a friends face.
